Repost, but I know how fast this board fills up and can be easily overlooked:

Lookie, Lookie what I found!!!!!  I clicked on a link after reading about DirecTV picking up Passions and stumbled upon a 2007 TV Viewer Panel.  Fair warning, you must be 16 or older to participate and it is pretty lengthy....however, Gilmore Girls is still listed in the lineups and you are able to vote for how often you watch all the shows listed.  It also asks about your demographics.  There is also a link at the bottom for sending feedback and questions to this marketing reasearch.  Whoo hoo, this could be another avenue for us.  When you have a few minutes, fill it out and it might give us some more leverage!!!!  I just filled mine out as asked to be sent further surveys concerning TV shows.

Not sure if anyone has posted this tidbit of info for the S7 DVDs or not: but on Amazon.com you search for Gilmore Girls: The Complete Seventh Season and click on it. There should be a link that says "alert me" or something similar. Amazon.com will email you when it becomes available for preorder.

Try it again in about an hour.  It's only 8am on the West Coast and their offices don't open until 9am, so it's probably still full from last night.

Preeeeeeesenting, after a one day absence so that I could celebrate my birthday, do laundry and write a petition for petitiononline.com, it’s time for another installment of . . .

Operation:  Daisy Duke.

Version 2.06:  Return of the Townies:  Special Edition   

MISSION STATEMENT:  Our overall goal with ODD is to send real daisies to everyone who could possibly be needed to get everyone back to the negotiating table in order to urge them to work one last time to revoke the cancellation of Gilmore Girls.

TODAY’S GOALS for “Operation: Daisy Duke” are:

A) To ask viewers everywhere to send daisies on their own to Dawn Ostroff, Lauren Graham and/or Alexis Bledel at their office addresses.  Details on format will be posted in today’s edition of the other Welcome FAQ dealing with the snail mail campaign later today.


B) To max out The CW's viewer comment line by no later than 8pm ET / 5pm PT M-F, call 1-818-977-6878 as early as you can in the day, to lodge your complaint about the changes to The CW's fall schedule, about the cancellation of Gilmore Girls and the opportunity that shouldn't be missed to revive Gilmore Girls now that American Idol has broken itself by voting the real winner off in third place.  Although the goal is to max out the comment line, please do NOT call the line yourself more than once per day -- please get more and more people to call it yourself.  The more people calling the better, the more repeat callers, the worse.  Feel free to mention where you're from, what CW station you watch, your age, how you feel about whatever happens to Veronica Mars and also about the terrible replacement for Gg in the 8pm Tuesday timeslot (HINT:  It's Beauty and the Geek, which is nothing more than the network conceding the timeslot to Fox.), etc.

Without further adieu, I present to you “Operation: Daisy Duke.”

1)  Why "Operation:  Daisy Duke"?  Because it just wouldn't be a Save Gilmore Girls campaign without a bizarro pop culture reference coming from left field.  The show has made some very amusing equations between Lorelai and the hottest Dukes cousin, including having Lorelai drive a jeep (just like Daisy did), having Lorelai wear Daisy Dukes to her meeting with Headmaster Charleston on Rory's first day at Chilton, because Stars Hollow is the set where Hazzard County used to exist and because the exterior of Lorelai's house is the exterior of Uncle Jesse's house.  And because the many ironies inherent in the show's premise strongly suggest that we'll have better luck than Max did with his daisies.

2) Besides the obvious reference to the episode "Love, Daisies and Troubadours," why daisies?  Because nationwide flower delivery is faster than snail mail at this point (ie: next-day delivery) and it's our "tobasco sauce" campaign without a chance of frightening the network in these post 9-11 days.

3) Yes, the series season finale has aired, but it's time to triple our resolve, not to give in! It's time to set up some infrastructure and dive into some serious save-the-show projects.  Lauren's exit interview with Michael Ausiello at TV Guide does NOT mean that all is lost -- she was taken aback by the abrupt cancellation of the series (no matter how much she tries to spin it) and moreover, nobody looks forward to auditions (as she mentioned to Ausiello that she's having to start doing), so Lauren even noting it is a cry for help.  Furthermore, Scott Patterson said in no uncertain terms in his exist interview with Ausiello that he is not happy with the way that the show ended.  MOREOVER, Kelly Bishop and Liza Weil both voiced their unhappiness with the abruptness of the show ending in a Washiington Post article posted on Tuesday, May 15th at
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/05/14/AR2007051401693.html (free and fast registration may be required.)  Encouragingly, Farscape got its four-hour miniseries LONG after the show was cancelled.  Firefly's "Serenity" epilogue was greenlit LONG after that show was cancelled -- and that became a theatrical movie.  Not saying that Gg would go to the big screen, but the perseverance -- the hard work -- of these show's fandoms BEYOND their shows' so-called endings resulted in proper endings for those shows.

4)  Please send your daisies through your local florist.  There are many sources from your local florist to the internet through which you can send daisies to Ms. Ostroff.  Three of the biggest online alternatives include Teleflora, FTD.com and, 1-800-flowers.com, all of which operate national delivery services through local florists anyway.  Many of the online florists only promote $40 vase arrangements of daisies, which may be beyond a Gg fan's budget, but you can probably ask them to send a much cheaper bouquet of a dozen daisies if you ask them (Can't blame them for promoting the more expensive stuff).  A dozen daisies would likely come in a typical cellophane wrap if they're bought by the stem.  Order the daisies in the way that is best for you. 

5) Send yellow daisies ONLY because that's the color of Lorelai. 

6) Send your daisies to Dawn Ostroff at the following address: 

Ms. Dawn Ostroff, President of Entertainment
The CW Television Network
4000 Warner Blvd., Bldg 168
Burbank, CA 91522-0002


AND to Lauren and/or Alexis (especially Alexis) at the addresses of their management teams at:

Lauren Graham
c/o John Carrabino Management
100 North Crescent Dr.
G-400
Beverly Hills, CA 90210

Alexis Bledel
c/o Flutie Entertainment
6500 Wilshire Blvd
Suite 2240
Los Angeles, CA 90048


You can, of course, send small message cards with your bouquet.  The rule is this:  BE POLITE AND POSITIVE.  Do NOT write anything like "I hate you because you cancelled Gilmore Girls!" or "I'm sad that you cancelled Gimore Girls" or "I won't watch The CW ever again unless you uncancel Gilmore Girls."  I totally understand, respect and even share those feelings, but, after all, it's not something that Lorelai or Rory would do in this situation.  Instead, write something like "Please renew Gilmore Girls!" or "Please uncancel Gilmore Girls" and sign it with at least your name and address so that they know how far Gg's fanbase has spread throughout the country and the world.

7) DEADLINE: EVERYDAY is the official deadline. Any day that Daisies or letters or voicemails or email arrive ESPECIALLY because the Fall Schedule was announced at the Upfronts WILL still help!  They need the input about what you think about the fall schedule (and don't say, "It sucks because Gilmore Girls is not on it."

Cool  There is no 8 yet.  That’s the whole point.

9) Please post to this thread when you've sent a bouquet.  Even one hundred bouquets of just a dozen daisies sent to Ms. Ostroff will surpass the 1000 mark of daisies mentioned by Lorelai and increased by a factor of, oh, ten by Max at the end of LD&T and I am sure that we'll send a lot more than that.

10)  Please spread the word of "Operation:  Daisy Duke" around to other MBs and forums that have enthusiastic Gilmore supporters.  Some of the obvious boards are FanForum, the cwtv.com lounge, etc.  We don't want to annoy people, especially since there are people who post to multiple MBs.  But still, let us know which MBs it gets posted to and provide a link to this thread or to the Great 8 Mandate thread.  If you so desire, please copy this entire post to that forum.

Let's spread the word!  "Operation:  Daisy Duke" continues!

I just logged onto Teavee and I could not figure out how to vote (I really feel stupid).  I set up an account, but to no avail.  Could someone tell me how?

Okay I figured out how to vote.  Now how can the other shows get so many votes in the 20 second slot.  Is there a secret?

I just sent a letter to Alexis today. Does anyone know approximately how many letters have been sent? What about how many daisies? Has there been any response from advertisers? Just curious to have an update would be nice! Huh

There have been reports of responses from a few advertisers via email -- they're forwarding repsonses to their ad-buying department.  There's actually no way of knowing how many letters or daisies have been sent to Dawn, Lauren and/or Alexis in general -- as there are undoubtedly a lot of fans who are skipping the middleman of any MB and just sending letters and/or daisies on their own.  IMO, though, just guesstimating off the top of my head since I first started posting the ODD campaign and including Heidi's PayPal daisy campaign, there have been at the very *least* 3 or 4 dozen individual deliveries of daisies to various combinations of each woman just rhough this message board alone.  Heidi's arrangements were very large and must have included a minimum of 100 daisies apiece, perhaps even 150 apiece, but let's say 100 each to Dawn, Lauren and Alexis.  Add to that that most of the deliveries (lke mine) appear to have been of the $40 vase variety -- which have about 2-3 dozen flowers in them and at the very least, that's broken 1000 daisies sent *just by readers of this thread alone.*  Doesn't count anyone who sent daisies on their own, doesn't count anybody who sent them because they independently came up with the same idea I did.  It may take me a week or more to go through the last 100 pages or so to get a more accurate estimate of just what *we've* sent so far.

As for letters, we really have no way of knowing how many letters Dawn, Lauren or Alexis have been sent, just like we don't know how many voicemails have been sent to their viewer comment line.  Nevermind that, it's got to be in the tens of thousands by now even without the help of the Mandate thread.  Just know that you're being heard, keep sending letters.  Send them through the actors' agents, particularly through Alexis's agent, as she may be the one who needs the most convincing to come back.  Keep calling once per day.  It'd be wonderful if we've already got The CW's comment lines maxed out today before even the Veronica Mars fans get a chance to call in.  (BTW, the line was still open *before* the East Coast airing of Gg last Tuesday, so if we have it maxed out even before VM airs, then, uh, maybe we'll trump their demand.)
